Across the hydrogen industry, ammonia is being branded as a key solution for the storage and transport of the clean energy carrier. As the US anticipated the announcement of which hydrogen hub proposals will receive funding from the Department of Energy’s (DOE) $8bn fund to establish regional hydrogen hubs, one company is attempting to make headway with its innovative approach to using ammonia within the prospected hubs.
Brooklyn-based Amogy is a sustainable technology start-up that says it is building a carbon-free energy system that uses ammonia as a renewable fuel. Having developed a novel chemical-based ammonia cracking technology to separate hydrogen from the fuel carrier, which it believes could play a key role in the deployment of hydrogen.
Having already become a partner of the NYSERDA hydrogen hub consortium to establish hub in New York state, H2 View spoke to Seonghoon Woo, CEO of Amogy, to learn more about where the company and its technology fits into the evolving hydrogen ecosystems.
